Carradine family seeks outside probe in death

Associated Press
 

LOS ANGELES – The family of David Carradine is asking the FBI and a private forensics expert to help investigate the “Kung Fu” actor’s death, attorney Mark Geragos said Saturday.

Carradine’s brother Keith met Friday with the FBI and filed reports that could lead to the agency opening its own inquiry, said Geragos, who represents Keith Carradine. The family will also seek a private autopsy by famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to determine whether another person could have been involved, Geragos said.

Geragos said the family intervened because of conflicting information about Carradine’s death Thursday in a Bangkok hotel and a lack of direct information from Thai authorities.

“All we really know is not much more than what the public knows, and that’s disturbing,” Geragos said.
